Removal of the Parlements

Dublin Core

Title

Removal of the Parlements

Description

The physical eviction of the black–robed magistrates in front of a female audience has a somewhat ambiguous message. On the one hand, noting the female figure on the dias in the back, this image could suggest excessive female authority at court, notably that of the Countess du Barry. On the other hand, the humiliation of the magistrates in front of these women is not flattering to them either.
